One of my distractions this evening was being on a BBC 'Live Five' radio show with somebody whose whole theme was that Romney should dig in for a weeks-long recount fight rather than concede.
By comparison, I have to say that Romney's concession statement was as brave and gracious as you could have expected.
Let me emphasize the "brave." Those of us in normal life can barely begin to imagine the humiliation, pain, and overall horribleness of what Romney and his family are facing right now. He did his manful best, for which we all should be grateful -- and for which he deserves praise and respect.
